sport of Thrones’ writer and govt manufacturer George RR Martin these days spoke to amusement Weekly about the imminent display, which takes location about 5,000 years before the activities depicted in HBO’s now-concluded wonderful hit fable drama.

needless to say, Westeros turned into very exclusive back then.

. The whole lot that takes place in the prequel will lead up to the epic disagreement with the White Walkers, known as The long night, proven in episode three of season 8. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Right here are 5 other facts approximately the new show, or even a likely new identify.

A one hundred kingdoms

100 Kingdoms

Westeros is split into over a one hundred smaller kingdoms in the prequel. “We speak about the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros – at the least, there were Seven Kingdoms at the time of Aegon’s Conquest,” Martin said. “however if you pass again similarly, then there are 9 kingdoms, and 12 kingdoms, and finally, you get returned to where there are a 100 kingdoms — petty kingdoms — and that’s the technology we’re speakme approximately here.” So basically, Westeros will be even more risky, chaotic and lawless right here than it changed into in game of Thrones. Yikes!

The percent survives


the brand new display will have Starks and dire wolves as properly. The fan favored guardians of the North descended from the first guys so this turned into pretty apparent, we think. “The Starks will certainly be there,” Martin stated.

there may be speculation that the prequel is pre-Targaryen and so, sans any dragons. But that doesn’t mean there received’t be different creatures. “manifestly, the White Walkers are here. There are things like dire wolves and mammoths as well,” delivered the author.

No Lannisters

no lannisters

The prequel predates the rise of the Lannister family but there will be another family presently living in King’s landing. “The Lannisters aren’t there yet, but Castlery Rock is honestly there; it’s just like the Rock of Gibraltar,” Martin found out. “It’s actually occupied with the aid of the Casterlys — for whom it’s still named after within the time of game of Thrones.” For the ones of you who don’t consider, the Casterlys had been supposedly robbed off their dwelling house with the aid of Lann the clever, who founded house Lannister thereafter.

always a group attempt

the brand new display additionally has an ensemble cast. HBO seemed to signify that it might be led by way of a trio of lady leads (Naomi Watts, Naomi Ackie, and Denise Gough). But Martin clarified this isn't real. “As you realize, for sport of Thrones, we by no means even nominated absolutely everyone for lead actress or lead actor [during awards season] till these days; it become constantly for helping [categories] because the show is such an ensemble,” he maintained. “I suppose with a purpose to be proper for this display too. We don’t have leads so much as a massive ensemble cast.

The call recreation



The prequel continues to be formally untitled. Within the past, Martin has cautioned the title ‘The long night time’ however as we stated in advance, the 1/3 episode of season 8 become already referred to as that. And so, there's another comparable possibility being taken into consideration. “I heard a suggestion that it could be called The Longest night, that's a variant I wouldn’t mind,” teased the mastermind. “that would be quite true.”

it may were simplest months seeing that recreation of Thrones ended however after studying all this, we can’t wait till the prequel comes out! Can you?
